with Negro leaden in professions, busi-

One of the moat startling revela-

ostensibly for scientific stndy among 
the Xegro population, especially of the 
South, whose work, however, Dr. Sim-

tion of a military nature .and to 
"sound out" the Negro lenders on 
their alleginnce to the country. ; He 
also declares that t persistent and skill-

the Negroes b-. pseaehing class, hatred 
to them and .to show, them that this 
would tie tbv psychological moment to

NEGROES OFFER 
HOUSING ••SWAI**'- 
WITH WHITES 



What to do with the. Negro -was an- 
awcrcd yesterday by the Negroes th-m 
selves, when a committee of Negroes 
met with • committee of the Chicago 
Heal Estate Board. As a result, a com- 
mittee of two whites and two Negroes 
will thrash out the problem, 

George H. Jackson, a wealthy Negro 
real estate man, promised the co-opera- 
tion of the Negro citizens and declared 
they were* anxious tor-agreement. 
Want to be "by Themselves 

"We are anxious to 'conflne ourselves 
In our own' community life, social af- 
fairs and business. - *' he said. "Wo do 
not want to live in the same block with 
white people if we can help it be- 
cause it i» not conducive to our hap- 
piness. But we want to live in decent 
homes, decent neighborhoods, with 
good schools, good churches, and on. 
lines of good transportation. 

"If the white property owners and 
white real estate agents will turn over 
to Negroes the buildings in the black 
belt now beiog used by white people 
t lien we'll be only too glad to turn 
over our holdings In the white resi- 
dential dlatriete. " 

Seek Executive Suction , „ 

Eugene M anna, Negro real cstute 
dealer, suggested that a committee of 
white and Negro men. be appointed to 
study- out the situation and develop a 
plan .whereby one section of the city 
be given exclusively to Colored people.

surgeon of Chicago, who is one. of the 
ci.vic leaders of that city and the 
nresideut of the Wabaah Ave Y. M. C.

By Strange Voice 



Citizens Report to Police That Mysteri-

Telephone. Impossible to ^race. 
Woman Terrified by Calls Seeks Aid) 
of Telephone Exchange 

New Serial at Booker Washington 

Theater Starting Next Monday, 

April 10 

During the pant two or three days 
many residents of this city hsve been 
thrown into a state of terror as the 
result of a mysterious voice which hns 
been calling them hy telephone, and, 
when they" have answered, thoy re- 
ceived the replyt "This is the voice 
on thn wire! 1 ' Before they have an 
opportunity to aalt'quyjrfona, the voice 
at the other end is silenced. 

Some of the best families in tbe rity 
have been thus annoyed and mystified 
at all boors of the day and night. 
Women, who have received those cnlls, 
lata- at -night, when tkey were alone, 
have gone frantic with teui. One 
woman; — a member of one nf the most 
representative families in town — upon 
receiving this strange communication 
the othor evening, juat as she was 
about to retire, dropped the' receiver, 
and ran two blocks to the police sta- 
tion in her nightgown. She was hy 
Stories! upon her arrival there, and a 
physician had to be called M min- 
ister to her, before she was able to 
tell her story to the officer at the desk. 

Although the police de|inrtment hri> 
I'nade eVery effort to fathom this mys 
icry they have made lit tie progress. 
They are not certain it Is not tho'work 
nf some practical joker, and yet, this 
arouses jbe tjuettiaa as til what pur 
jmso the Individual would liuve in enn 
tinually perpetrating Hie iniiie joke. 

At any rate, the creator, of this 
"voice on the .wire'' hn- manifested 
considerable boldness; for not only 
has he been repeating his messages tn 
residents of the etanmntrity, but has 
even gone so far ns tti ^ill up the 
chief of jmlice. nnd defied liimlo dis 
roCur the Identify nf the, mice. TMa

SOUTH XINLOCH PARK IB BOOM- 

ma 

White people who have bought more 
than ono thousand lota In old Kinloch 
Park have been paying the sun* price* 
on the same terms as the Colored poo- 
ply who have bought in South Kialoeb 
Park. If then it any difference, the 
Colored people nave been getting the

nearer the eity and has better street 

T atrrls*. 

The good Colored people of Sooth 
Kinloch Park hay* built themselve* a 
little city of which they bar* 'a right

us — to help with their money, their In- 
fluence and their good will to naka 
South Kinloch. Park a bigger and bet- 
ter place for the self -respecting Negro 
to live and make hi* home. 

We have given these people a big 
share of our profits In order to get 
their belp, because we believe, it is for 
the beneflt of everybody concerned. 

We hays always been ready to give 
land to toe churches at a nominal price 
— bcoause we believed tbey would help 
South Kinloch Park. 

We have always been rendy to give 
loud to schools and pubile institution! 
at a nominal price — because we- believed

A MENACE IN THE SOUTHS DISLOYALTY CHARGE 

One of the most subtile and perhaps the most daring attack 
ever made upon a race of people, is the attempt of certain Southern- 
ers to spread a report that Negroes were being persuaded to prove 
disloyal to this country in the case of war with Germany. 

To offset this absurd and infamous accusation, it behooves 
every Negro man and woman to show hy their every word\and 
action that the report is a base and premeditated lie. Negroes 
have ever shown their true worth to the country in time of war, 
and will continue to do so regardless of the machinations of de- 
signing Negro hating Southerners whose sole purpose is to discredit 
the race at a time when America needs the whole-hearted support 
of every citizen, no matter how iowly he may Be. 
L Everyone knows that the charge that Negroes can be induced 
ur.ioin in a rebellion against this eountry, is hardly worth conside- 
ration: it ts absurd and extremely false.. But the danger does not 
lie in whether the charge is true or false, it lies in the possibility of 
the Southerners being able to impress the country that there is 
some truth in it. If this impression can be made, the Southern 
States will be allowed a free hand, (under the clause "Military 
Necessity") to "place the Negroes of the South under quasi -martial 
law. Under sqeh regulation, the free movement and free gather- 
ing of colored people would be restrained, and every form of vio- 
lence and oppression would be excused as being justified. The 
South would see a revival of the Ku Klux K.Ian, and as long as the 
war lasted, and perhaps for many years after, the Negro would-be 
held' in a. virtual state of slavery. 

Southern members of Congress. have all along opposed a uni- 
versal training law, because no such law could be framed that 
exclude the Negro as a man and citizen. Therefore, if this cert din 
Southern element carr-convince the country that the Negro ia dis- 
loval to the flag or even throw doubt upon his loyalty, they will be 
able to exclude' him from universal training, and the right as a citi- 
zen to bear arms; the migration from the South will be stopped by 
force, and there will be a general restriction of civil rights all along 
the line. 

The whole thing is *ne of the most cowardly attacks ever made 
upon a race; especially wjien history records that the men of, that 
race .have shed their life's blood for America in every war that this 
country has ever known.

SUMMERTIME 15 COMING 

Yes. summertime is coming. And witr/it comes also, the dirty 
head rag, soiled wrapper, leaning out of front windows eating, sit- 
tinir at front windows with number eleven feet hanging out. loung- 
ing on street comers talking about your own business and likewise 
every body else's business, sitting inside of picture shows asleep 
and snoring so loud that the music can' scarcely be heard, strolling 
aimlessly up and down Market St. or some other street just to be 
seen, and hundred other breeches of common sense that should be 
catalogued as misdemeanors. If you are wise, or want to be con- 
sidered as being used to a big city, you- will cut all of these untidy 
and foolhardy pastimes out. 



NATIONAL NEGRO HEALTH WEEK 

The National- Negro Business League has issued its annual bul- 
letin for a National Negro Health Week. April 21-27^1917. The 
bulletin gives some sterling advice as to what should be done iri 
each community for the betterment of health-conditions. Some of 
the suggestions as toiiow each community should organize follows: 
The appointing of a Clean tjp Committee: ■ This Committee should 
appoint other' Committee? as follows: Committee on Inspection, 
Committee on Publicity, Finance Committee, Committeeon Meet- 
ings," Committee on School Children, Committee on Flies and Miis- 
quitoes. Every family that has a yard should plant it. All cellars, 
basemenls and out houses should be' thoroughly cleaned. 

Regular Clean Up Week for the City of St. Louis will take 
place very soon, and the Local Negro Business League should co- 
operate wit.h the city authorities along this line.

Listening to 
God Daily 



I For gome time die Moody Bible In- 

ititnte has been urged, and by one 




Bi'sn man (spe- 
cially, to add to 
Kb activities the 
work of promot- 
ing daily " Bible 
leading. There 
are severnl or- 
ganlmUone which 
are already doing 
excellent work 
along tills line, 
but most of them 
reach only a lim- 
ited number of 
peonle, owing to 
the fact that it Is 
necessary to sub- 
. aerobe to a magu- 
line In order to secure the comments 
tor the lesson of the day. For this 
reason, and for the further reason that 
lo spite of all- that 1h being done, there 
yet remain* a large number of pro- 
teasing Christians who are doing no 
systematic reading of the Bible, anil 
millions of others who almost Ignore 
the Book, the Institute has felt led to 
open up a campaign for the promotion, 
of dally Bible reading, and we Invite 
the readers of -this column to Join 
with ub in th!» effort and to share In 
Its benefits. 

Bow to Induce them to do what they 
already admit Is their duty, Is the 
problem before us. as It Is before 
every pastor and church leader. To 
scold them Is worse than Useless. 
\ Questions to Consldsr. 



opportunity from week to week to 
listen -to sermons and admonitions 
from nearly 200,000 pastors, do 'not 
more closely follow Jesus and more 
fully represent him to ' and in the 
worldl * 

Answer — Tea. The words of the 
preaciier fall on hearts full, of the 
cares and pleasures of this life, and In 
soil unprepared by the Indwelling of 
the Spirit and the water of the Word. 

Question — Without Increasing 
churches or pastors, how could -their 
efficiency- be multiplied one hundred 
fold? -.- -^ 
| Answer— Ay a proper preparation of 

F'lie heart to hear the messages -pro- 
ioimed by the ministers of God. 
Question — How can this preparation 
Ibe'brongbt about, without any more 
■Institutions, organisations or expendl- 
fture of money! ' ' 

Answer— If all church officers 
jwould, with the pastors,. Insist upon 
dally worship andTlaiiy Bible reading* 
;i« the home* of all the Christian) In 
jtlie land, themselves becoming eiam- 
jik-s mill lospirers therein, 'God would 
(answer the effort and service -with 
such a blessing to his' church aa the 
'world baa never known. Th* people 
wonld be more godly, and tha world 
would have preached to them the 
greatest sermon of these nineteen cen- 
turies. 

- And now, pastors, will you help ns, 
and will you let na help you? We do 
Tn'it claim to have any special light or 
Wisdom on this matter; and we would 
hut presume to teach yon. who have 
long and prayerfully pondered this 
jproblem. But we have a vision of. a 
widespread and appalling need, a 
mighty famine of the Word of God ; 
and we believe that a wise and persist' 
eot campaign to promote dally Bible 
reading Is greatly needed.. By a cam- 
paign such aa yon and we can carry 
on, together' with multitudes -of lay- 
men who will gladly co-operate, and 
scores of religious papers which we 
hope to enlist In the same work, be- 
lieve that thousands of church -mem- 
bers can be Induced to read the Bible 
more regnlarly than they are now do- 
ing. 

We know there Is power ID the 
Word, almighty power, power «uin- 
rlent for every need. . And we be- 
lieve (bat with your co-operallon we. 
can let loose some of that power, and 
make these columns a blessing to mul- 
titudes of hungry hearts and homes.' 

Now. will you Join bands wltfi us In 
l>ls great campaign? Will yon preach 
en. the theme of dally Bible reading. 
snd stir up your people on the sub- 
JectT WIH yon tell as. of any plans 
which you. nave found helpful In arous- 
ing an Interest In the Bible! And 
will yon pray for ua, aa we. do dally 
for jouT " - 

To Lay Worker*. 

Ton too- can help us by catling the 
attention of your pastor to this col- 
umn, by asking him to preach on' the 
.subject of dally .Bible resifing. and by- 
sending ua any helpfnl plans or 1) 1ns- 
tnatlons which. bear upon tbls subject. 
Above all ydu can pray that God, will 
give ns wisdom and grace sufficient to 
carry' this great campaign to a suc- 
cessful Issue. Will- you do it 7 
To all Rradcra. 

'Nest month we purpose to describe 
a plan by which' one pastor was able 
to Interest Ma people, yonng and old. 
In Bible reaolng. In an onnsnal way. 
and by wbicb bl> ojra ministry was 
completely transformed, and his use- 
fulness was greatly lacnased. It is a 
plan which we believe all pastors wl 1 1 
And eakyto work, tbopgh not without

LESSON FOR APRIL 15 

' JESUS THE GOOD SHEPHERD. 

uaeaon text-ioud ski-it, 

GOLDEN TEXT— I am th* good Shap- 
bard: Uw good Shepherd glvath Hla lira 
for the aheap.— John io:H. 

This lesson probably occurred at 
the Foist ■ of the Tabernacle In Octo- 
ber, A. D. 2ft. The place was Jeru- 
salem, perhaps In or near tbe temple. 
Facta, pictures and Illustrations re- 
garding es stem shepherd life can be 
used, effectively In'tencblng the lesson. 
The true teacher must Impart, develop 
and protect, Jesus does all of these 
things. 

Any- 



I. Jesus, tha Door (vr. 1-9] 
one who tries to get access to tha 
sheep, sny other way than through 

j Jesus tbe door la a thief and a rob- 
ber (v. 1). A door Is an Invitation to 

i enters to Investigate, to purchase, to 
loam, to meet others. It Is the proper 
entrance. To go In through any other 

! way arouses suspicion. If Is also a 

' means of safety to control those who 

' enter; It can be closed In case of dan- 
ger, and Is strong to. protect sgnlnat 
storms and thieves. It Is a means of 
separation, to. Insure privacy, and to 

' furnish a means of egress. Jeans says 
we are to "go In" for communion with 
God. and to "ro out" for service, to 

j "go In" for strength and ,to "go out™ 
for conflict. Verse nine Is a wonder- 

' ful verse. In It we have tbe simplic- 
ity ot the G6.speJ, "I am the door;'* 

'the exclodveness of the. Gospel. "By 
me," tbe conditions of the Gospel, "En- 
ter In;" tbe certainty. "Be saved ;" the 
liberty. "Go In. and out;", tbe provis- 
ion, _"F1nd. .pasture." 'V^gtr***' f*" - 
The true acceptance of Jesus leads 
not to a Ufa. of fear and constraint 
but to the perfect liberty at m child, 
satisfaction In green pastures IPs. 23: 
E) that never fall (Rev. 7^16-lT), Tha 
world's richest pasture. lands are bleak 
and barren wildernesses In comparison 
with this. Christ Is the door to other 
things not mentioned In this lesson 
(See John 14:6; Eph. 2:18; Bom. 5:1- 
2: Hcti. iomo-^). By him we enter 
the -room of the knowledge of God. 
The Christian's business Is to know 
Gud and to make him known. 

II. Jesus, tha Good Shepherd (tt. 
WIS), It Is not enough to be a door. 
A' ikior has no volition. It cannot leave 
Its place. A shepherd can go Id anil' 
out. A false Christ, and false shep- 
herd are really thieves and robbers 
who come to "Steal and kill and de- 
stroy,"; On the other bund, Jesus'' 
mission was a glorious one, "I corns 
that they might have life, and that 
they might have It more abundantly." 
As a good. Shepherd (!) be has cour- 
age (v: 12). leaps was not only will- 
ing, but actually did give bis life for 
the sheep. Re had love for all of tbe 
sheep, and was 1 wilting to seek the lost 
(Matt 18:12). -He also had confr. 
dence, due to his knowledge of God (v. 
14). .This Is not audacity but quiet 
confidence due /to experience. Ha 
knows the proper pastures. He knows 
where to find water for. the sheep. He 
knows the dangers and pi (falls .along 
tha pathway. Be knows how to di- 
rect our efforts. Sunday school teach- 
ers. who are following In the steps of 
the master, and who perform the sets 
of a good, shepherd, must pay the 
price of knowledge. (2) Jesus bad 
character (v. IB). Be was right In. 
the slghf of God, but In order to be 
right In the sight of Ood he must also 
be right In the sight of men. (M ex- 
pects results. The church expects re- 
sults from us. The parents who trust 
their children to our teaching expect 
results. A sbeep does not live for It- 
self. It live* for others. Unless It 
produces wool, - and Is good for meat, 
it has existed lit vain; so Ood, man 
and tbe church expect of ua, aa under- 

Sepherds, that we shall produce fe- 
lts. This we do not have to do In 
our own strength. for any of us may 
have the life, which la "abiimhint" and 
^exceeding" and "beyond measure" 
The question Is, have we this super- 
abundant life! (See I Pet. 1:8; John 1 
1 IIS ; OoL 1 : IS r Eph. 3 :16-19>. .

tion to tea points sbont the E""d Shep-

sturv in of two p^nts dressed alike who 
hetoine in vol veil with two women of 
the same name, anil in the mixture get

trsltn. Harper and Russell do some 
neat dancing flad Pugh docs an ec-

choruses and the dancing generally is 
artistic, . Mis.. Alto Oats, a St. Louis 
girl, haa wonder fully Unproved and 
her dancing Is the life of the show. 
Hiss Ar^reola Blanks is an actress 
with much talent, displaying polish in 
actions and expression.

tamioe," the piece that made such a 
tremendous hit here last season.
